You need to define a class and use your dataset inside the class to implement custom paging.
Then you just need to use a object datasource and use your own class as the datasource for object datasource.
For more detailed information, study Pro ASP .NET 2 by Matthew McDonald, Apress.

Can i not achieve my objective to set the custom page index through only onrowcreated and onrowcommand event of the gridview if i am not required to use objectdatasource control for this.

We have dataacess layers which returns us dataset.

What i think i can simply put one textbox...at runtime somebody type the pagesize and from another dropdownlist (both present in the pager template )i can select which page out of available pages i want to navigate directly.
